|Commander: Rule 0||Legal|
Suspend 3— (Rather than cast this card from your hand, pay and exile this with three counters. At the beginning of your upkeep, remove a time counter. When the last is removed, cast this without paying its mana cost.)
Search target opponent's library for a creature card and put that card onto the battlefield under your control. Then that player shuffles their library.

I have a Quest for Ula's Temple deck which does some similar things, I liked Dreamscape Artist because it can reshuffle your library as needed, incase you don't have a relevant creature to work with on top. It's technically only 1 mana and a card to Harrow (you get back 2 untapped lands, so it can also helping mana fixing) Blue, and I could be wrong but I think your Commander wants the odd Discard outlet too. A worse (but still potentially useful) piece of Blue ramp is Apprentice Wizard, it's not as good as Dreamscape, it's like Worn Powerstone, which is a good rock if you want bigger ramp to potentially cast a big creature a bit sooner. Thran Dynamo and Gilded Lotus are big ramp rocks with decent ratios. Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Cabal Coffers are pretty good together, if you have a lot of devotion to a colour Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx can help, Deserted Temple can untap any land that makes extra mana. Less rampy and more of a big Scry effect, Soothsaying is a neat card if you care about your deck order. Scroll Rack is better but costs more.
Just a general idea, you might throw in things like Reconnaissance Mission, Bident of Thassa, and Coastal Piracy along with some Unblockable or Shadow creatures (Thalakos and Dauthi are the Blue and Black tribes). You can also throw in stuff like Sword of the Animist, Dowsing Dagger Flip, Prying Blade, Goldvein Pick, Grim Hireling, and any other attack payoffs you can find to generate more value over time. I understand you want a sea-monster theme, but you might want a way to draw some cards/get in some chip damage to soften people up. The only drawback to Shadows is that they can't chump block. If you really want your evasive creatures to be able to chump, there are some small flyers like Spectral Sailor and Thousand-Faced Shadow that have other upsides, these are risk free but are way less evasive than Shadows.
On that note, if you're worried about getting attacked you might look at Propaganda, War Tax, Flood, and Fatespinner are all great ways to make you hard to attack. Mass Diminish, Polymorphist's Jest, Sudden Spoiling, AEtherize, Aetherspouts are all great cards for people to fear.
Callous Oppressor is a funny repeatable theft effect, Ritual of the Machine and Helm of Possession can both steal stuff and are great with tokens, Thieving Skydiver can steal an artifact creature fwiw, Sower of Temptation is a so-so theft effect that shines bright if you can flicker or bounce it, Thalakos Deceiver is probably way better since he permanently steals whatever and can be reanimated, Inevitable Betrayal and Bribery are both pretty sweet.
The biggest (and perhaps best) theft effects are Mass Manipulation and Cultural Exchange, exchange requires bodies but can also be used aggressively to just ruin two players' boards.
Inkwell Leviathan, Lochmere Serpent, Spawning Kraken, Stormtide Leviathan, and Wrexial, the Risen Deep are some relevant creatures I use, some are better than others but there is nothing as bad as Sea Serpent or Bog Serpent, both cards I love but don't use.
If you like Whelming Wave, you might like Spectral Deluge as well.
Hope some of this helps, Big Dimir is a fun deck!
Gilver on Tetsuo Rageblade

haydensmith423 Looks nice!
I would cut Bloodthirster. It doesn't untap Tetsuo and is a wasted slot for 6 mana imo. You already have enough extra combat cards. Jin-Gitaxias, Progress Tyrant is also too expensive, yes the payoff is great but you would be better off to run something like Propaganda for more protection from go-wide decks, after all, you are not running lots of creatures and are going to be open for attackers. I am also not sure about Kaldra Compleat, sounds good on paper but has an high equipment cost and 7 CMC. You could slot in Blackblade Reforged, which can make him real strong.
Chandra's Ignition is a must-have card, can finish off opponnents when tetsuo has infect or you can end up gaining lots of life if he has lifelink.
Also have a look at Kediss, Emberclaw Familiar. Why not hurt the whole table if you are at it?
Another crucial card you are missing in this deck is Hammer of Nazahn. Not only does tetsuo gain indestructibe, but you ignore equipment costs. It is a huuuge advantage.
You can also go infinite with Sword of Hearth and Home if you have Akki Battle Squad out, it is a great equipment and one of the cheaper "Sword of X and Y" cards.
Inevitable Betrayal is also one of those suspend casts which you can cast for "free". It is a fun card so definitely include it if you find the space. Imagine stealing a Blightsteel Colossus from someone or an Eldrazi.
I am also not sure if Sword of Truth and Justice is a good idea to run in this deck. The card gives you protection from red, which makes it unable to be equiped with cards like Embercleave. The payoff is decent, can make tetsuo pretty beefy in the long run.
Finally, Jhoira, Ageless Innovator and Pact Weapon are nice to haves in this deck. Cheat out equipment and cheat death. Also maybe cut Solemn Simulacrum and slot in Sword of the Animist. You are playing an equipment deck so why not go for an equipment for ramp instead.
You can check out my list if you feel like it, would appreciate your opinion! I went for cheap equipments and try to win through commander damage and/or infect. Not really that much different from your list. If you have questions, feel free to hit me up :D.

This deck seems like it would only be legal in Legacy, so you may want to change the format.
Most Cascade decks run the Suspend spells, such as Living End, Wheel of Fate, Inevitable Betrayal, Crashing Footfalls, etc.

Void Snare, Disperse, and Brazen Borrower are great ways to take advantage of Dementia Sliver's effect.
Praetor's Grasp and Inevitable Betrayal are also good. And Thoughtseize
Finally, Damnation can net you a very strong effect on the field with all your reanimation effects, and Murder is not a very good removal spell. I would consider Snuff Out, Doom Blade, Heartless Act, Infernal Grasp, Walk the Plank, Victim of Night, etc.
CardboardSalad on Can Zevlor copy suspend spells?

Can Zevlor, Elturel Exile copy something like Inevitable Betrayal?
Under a normal interaction, Inevitable Betrayal will be cast immediately at the beginning of your upkeep when the last time counter is removed. Zevlor says "when you next cast an instant or sorcery".
Is it possible to tap Zevlor in response to the time counter being removed (or before it on your turn), and be able to copy Inevitable Betrayal?
Flagellum on Codie Tokens

Thanks for this! Curious as to how I has performed. I was debating on what 0 suspend spell to abuse with Codie: Inevitable Betrayal for my opponents biggest threats or Profane Tutor for finding all my polymorph spells. I like the idea of stealing my opponent's creatures either to polymorph into a big bomb of my own or beat them with it. I will be running a few more 1 mana spells to make that happen and ways to return the suspend cards from the gy. The token route might be better to fend off would be attackers and polymorph targets too.
I just want to do something different than the standard Ad Nauseam combo.

@Angel_Zero: I like your thinking on that. I considered it. I’m looking at Inevitable Betrayal. That could be dynamite.
